Default Perfume burned a hole through my screen cover

Well, I was at the mall yesterday and my friends ambushed me with several bottles of perfume, many sprays of which hit my G1, specifically the screen which was covered with a protector. I wiped it off immediately of course. When I got home, there was a small hole near the center in the protector, and it looks like the whole screen protector is flaking apart. Ive already ordered a new one, but why would this happen?

The only thing i can think of is the alcohol in her perfume found a weak spot in the protector?

The base of most spray-type scents/perfumes is an organic solvent. Typically alcohol (of the 'rubbing' variety) but possibly something synthetic. I probably don't have to explain what happens when organic solvent comes into contact with weak plastic.

is it bad that i actually need you to "have to explain what happens when organic solvent comes into contact with weak plastic"? other than it burns a hole, but more so why?
